About James

“It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or when the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worth cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

James L. Clark providing medical care in Haiti after the 2010 earthquakeJames L. Clark believes his purpose on planet Earth is to serve others by being a loving, passionate, and powerful example of how to live a productive, meaningful, and positive life. He’s an author, medic, seasoned traveler, entrepreneur, and keynote speaker—just to mention a few.

After going to Haiti in 2010 to help the victims of the devastating earthquake, and to Japan in 2011 when the island was rocked by a tsunami, James found himself at odds with the world around him. In 2012, he decided to dedicate himself entirely to the service of others. He founded a non-profit organization called Boots on the Ground, and when not in Haiti or helping out with natural disasters in places like Moore, OK and Nepal, he’s been focusing on writing several more books and bettering himself so he can serve others.
